MADISON, Ala. – State Senator Bill Holtzclaw  held a press conference at the Madison City Hall to announce his intentions for the 2018 election cycle.

He said he will challenge Rep. Mo Brooks in the GOP primary for his spot in the United States Congress.

“As someone who has worn the uniform. As someone who has been in harms way in defense of our nation. I’m here to tell you, you send me to Washington, and the men and women in uniform are going to have another champion in Congress.”

Holtzclaw is currently serving his second term in the Alabama Senate, where he represents the people of Madison and Limestone counties. A Marine veteran who served our country for twenty years in the armed services, Holtzclaw served from 2008-2010 on the Madison City Council.
